Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
"So far they can talk about it all they like, the veto power of Russia and China blocks any good that the UN might have been able to do, not surprising that really as both of those states do not want to set uncomfortable precedents as they may wish to attack sections of their own populations before too long - (Sorry what was that you said? - Oh yes, Chechnya, Dagestan and Tibet I had forgotten all about them).

Surely you know Mr T, that the US has used its veto in the UN many times, to protect violations by Israel?

Islamic Fundamentalism is also, I would think, a more serious and present threat to Russia and China, than it is to we in the WEST?

I would be interested in your opinion of the West's reaction to the overthrow of "democracy" in Egypt and the subsequent slaughter of hundreds of demonstrators......was that not an attack on their own populace?.....Why do we not strike THEM??
